One of my favorite go-to meals is a homemade black bean veggie burger served over a spinach salad with a dollop of salsa. All of the ingredients are pretty much always in our pantry so here it goes:
(makes 4 patties)
1 can of organic black beans
1 red bell pepper (green or yellow are fine too)
1 small onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 cup of Panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons of homemade taco seasoning (see our Coastal Kitchen link here)
1-2 tablespoons of Sriracha hot pepper sauce
salt & pepper to taste
Strain the black beans and place in a blender or food processor (we use a Vitamix) then add the onion, garlic, red pepper and gently pulse the ingredients until they reach a hamburger-like consistency. Transfer the ingredients into a bowl and add the eggs, Panko bread crumbs, taco seasoning, hot sauce, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Make individual patties and place in a pan coated with olive oil or coconut oil and cook for a few minutes on each side.
So there you have it, super easy! I'll even eat them cold the next day, sometimes mixing one in with my morning scrambled eggs.
